I got latched onto spy dawn. I was successful in getting it unistalled. I have run several programs on my computer and it shows no viruses or spyware.
However, I still have a blinking blue, question mark, icon in my taskbar. When it is highlighted with the mouse is says system alert. When it is double clicked it opens a solicitation page for spy dawn. I cannot get rid of this annoying icon.
My system is Windows ME

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
